Life in the last few weeks has been hectic, to say the least. I have just concluded my busiest time of the year at work and am frankly exhausted. Last week was the culmination of nearly three months of hard work and I wasn't sure how I would make it to the end. I have just spent this first free weekend since January with my family doing mundane chores, enjoying the beautiful sunshine and even a trip to the local zoo with my kids. It's amazing to see animal life (or any other kind, for that matter) through the eyes of two curious children.
I also spent this weekend almost entirely away from the computer. It was a refreshing change after having been stuck at my desk for three months plugging away on the keyboard. Please bear with me as I regroup from my work season and my focus turns back to writing about my long-gone ancestors. During the last few months, I have received some fabulous information on my North Carolina ancestors, "met" a new cousin (via email), and even saw some new photos that put a few missing pieces of the puzzle together.
I have much to share so stick with me as we now return to our regularly scheduled programming.
